: that was president obama thursday nominating white house chief of staff jack lew as the next treasury secretary replacing tim geithner set to step down at the end of the month. so, kim, tell us about jack lew, who is he? what does he believe? >> well, he's mostly, i think, this is important, a creature of washington. he had a brief interlude out at citigroup, but a lot of time working in a political capacity and does in fact make him a much different creature for a position like the treasury secretary than we have in the past, folks who have come from that often out of the business world, established economists, might come from the fed. this is a person viewed by congress and many, by many people here in washington a more of an ideologue. >> and with the clinton administration, i know republicans thought he was an honest liberal, anybody he's emerged under this president as much more implacable. and mr. lew makes a lot of appearances, almost always in the role, when you see mr. obama and boehner making progress. he throws the monkey wrench and pretty much tanking the negotiations and makes him

of the combatants. first, new treasury secretary jack lew -- a veteran of the clinton and obama white houses - who will succeed timothy geithner. >> jack has my complete trust. i know i'm not alone in that. in the words of one former senator, "having lew on your team is the equivalent as a coach of having the luxury of putting somebody at almost any position and knowing he will do well." gwen: so what does lew's appointment tell the senators who must confirm him about what comes next in our epic budget fights? david? >> i think it tells us that the president anticipates that this year will be a year dealing with taxes and spending and deficits. it will be the fifth year in which we have a trillion dollar deficit and jack lew has been budget director in two administrations. unlike timothy geithner, he has very little experience in finance. that was geithner's strong point. he has very little experience in international. that was geithner's background. this is a guy who knows budget and knows congress. it sort of marks a punctuation point in the financial rescue. geithner was part of the rescue at t

calendars. we have a date now for president obama's state of the union address. house speaker john boehner invited the president to address a joint session of congress on tuesday, february 12th, a date the white house has accepted. in his invitation boehner says the country has immense challenges and will require a willingness to seek common ground. that's a message boehner might want to pass on to his own party as well i'd say. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." as vice president biden wraps up his week of meetings with stakeholders in the gun debate, outlines of biden's task force proposals are beginning to take shape. universal background checks for gun purchasers, limits on ammunition, stronger mental health checks for gun buyers, and even a report in today's "washington post" that senator barbara boxer presented a plan to the vice president to make federal funds available for schools that do want to hire police officers. next it will be president obama's turn to act on the recommendations of biden's task force. is the time now for big change, including a reinstatemen
yesterday at the white house. mr. obama says he awaits recommendations from the pentagon and commanders on the ground as to what kind of military footprint the u.s. will have in afghanistan in the near term and after 2014. but it will be this spring, not the summer or later in the year, as previously was discussed by the obama administration, that afghan forces will take the lead for security in all of their country. u.s. troops will step back into an advising and assisting role. >> our forces are still in harm's way, but make no mistake, our path is clear and we are moving forward because after more than a decade of war, the nation we need to rebuild is our own. >> the white house has left open the possibility that the u.s. may not leave any troops in afghanistan. arthel? >> arthel: molly henneberg, thank you very much for that report from washington. >> rick: fox news extreme weather alert. powerful winter storm in southern california practically bring life there to a near halt. a vital highway cut off by ice and snow this week is now open again. folks there nowhere near out of the wo
, of course, the official end of combat operations in afghanistan. earlier this week, the white house had signalled that president obama might be open to having zero troops in afghanistan after 2014, after the joint press conference yesterday. president obama said he hasn't worked out specifically how many troops will remain in afghanistan. that's an announcement he will make in coming months. hamid karzai had signalled that he really wanted a more robust american troop presence in afghanistan after 2014. yesterday, karzai wouldn't weigh in on the numbers. critics said if there are no forces or reduced force level in afghanistan, that could leave the country vulnerable and potentially to destabilize to the point that it would be involve into civil war. real concerns about how many troops will be in country this is significant, alex. the two countries have had a tel tense relationship. they had a show of unity in the sped up process. >> a show of unity. the new gun control measures facing the white house. the vice president meeting with representatives of the video game industry. will chan

on a friday night. that's coming up. >>> at the white house this week, president obama had to bid his official goodbye to the only treasury secretary he has ever known as president, tim geithner. and in so doing, president obama uttered a phrase that i have never heard before. i definitely never heard it in washington. but this saying is apparently common inside the u.s. department of the treasury, and it has now been liberated outside of its walls. >> there is an unofficial saying over at treasury -- no peacocks, no jerks, no whiners. that would be a good saying for all of washington. no peacocks, no jerks, no whiners. few embody that ideal better than tim geithner. >> tim geithner looks like he is about to explode with laughter listening to the president say that but the phrase is no peacocks, no jerks, no whiners. i mean jerks and whiners, we all get that. but the peacocks part here i think is a term of art. i don't think they mean peacocks in a generic way, i think they mean in a way that is specific to the treasury. here is what i mean. peacocks as birds are strutters, right? they puff th
to be that transcendent administration. that brought us all together. that is why president obama earned the white house. because he said he was going the great uniter. remember that beautiful inauguration address? it was glorious where he said to conservatives, i want to listen to you especially when we disagree. okay. nice, beautiful. beautiful idea. and he was going meet with conservatives in congress once a week, that was a great idea two. he meet twice. twice, two times. three days after the beautiful speech, the conservatives in congress came to the white house and they had a meeting and eric can cantor, are techlated the conservative perspective on increasing taxes we shouldn't do that. and you know what obama said three days after i want to listen to you? he said eric, i won, you lost, i trump you on that. then about a week later, he said i want the folks who got us in to the mess to do less talking. and a lot more listening. you can talk a little bit. i want you to stay on the sidelines while we try to clean it up for you. unbelievable. gone with any notion of unifying the country of bringing u
obama was i did not want to see larry summers in the white house.

-repeated claim that president obama's budget was struck down in the house and the senate, getting zero votes. goose eggs from either party. but those bills were not the budget. they were shell versions of the president's budget put forward by republicans designed to fail. they were not budgets. they were just politics. republicans did put out their own budget plan in the form of paul ryan's path to prosperity, but bipartisan bickering resulted in tho progress there either. part of the reason our government has been able to survive without a budget is because of something called continuing resolutions, which are essentially an extension of the existing budget. so it is not true, as many of you enjoy tweeting me, that the u.s. doesn't have a budget. we just haven't had a new one in some years, and that is a bad thing. also not true that obama's budget got no votes because that wasn't his budget. but the sad truth is we don't have a new budge net the united states, a new one, and there are consequences for that, not the least of which are the dozen or so close calls with government shutdowns in

in december, and it ran with an article that said "obama's remade inner circle has an all-male look so far." the white house released this photo, also, on tuesday. why has that become an issue? >> well, because the feminists, the national organization for women, for example, are leading a little petition drive against this. i don't think this is going to be the most effective campaign ever. not as if obama's credentials as a liberal are in disrepair. it's called a tempest in a teapot, one of the many subplots. >> to be fair to the president he has a lot of strong women around him. his top two advisors are his wife michelle and valley garrett and two members to the supreme court and strong women in the cabinet. at least in the first term, hillary clinton, kathleen sebelius and-- >> she's giving me a look. >> his record is better than president bush and no better than bill clinton-- >> how about a meritocracy. >> i'd like to have the press to look at who he has appointed and what's happened to them. >> jon: and jim says-- no, i'm sorry, charles krauthammer says the binders full of women cam
